Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk to miss season opener
Datsyuk scored 17 goals and recorded 20 assists last season, but was limited to only 45 regular season games because of a knee injury. The 36-year-old has amassed 272 goals and 532 assists over 12 seasons in Detroit.
The Red Wings went 39-28-15 last season before being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Bruins.
